There is no shortage of theories about how the moon was formed, over the years, including a natural disaster, collision or even collision with the ancient planet. However, a new study says that the moon and the Earth have different oxygen isotope compositions, it is to throw a wrench in how scientists believe the Earth has a satellite, it is made of.

The study, published in Nature Geoscience, noted that there was a small, but distinct and regular differences in the oxygen isotopic composition between the Earth and the moon, depending on the type of task example above), which suggests that there is a collision between the Earth and a hypothetical planet, is often referred to as Theia.

“Our findings suggest that the deep lunar mantle may have had the experience, the least of the mix, and it is the most representative of the impactor Theia,” said the study’s lead author, Erick Cano, in a statement. “The data suggest that the different oxygen-isotopic compositions of Theia, and the Earth is not completely homogenized by the Moon-forming impact, and provides quantitative evidence that Theia would have formed further from the Sun than the Earth is.”

LIFE ON EARTH MAY HAVE BEEN THE RESULT OF A COLLISION WITH THE OLD PLANET FOR MORE THAN 4 YEARS AGO

“Going into this project, it was expected that our results would most likely mirror that of previous studies,” Cano added, in an interview with the Space.com. “The most surprising part of our results is the finding that the amount of variation we have between the individual lunar samples.”

The moon has been a source of fascination for mankind for eons, and ever since the Apollo missions of the mid-20th century, humanity’s view of our celestial satellite can be significantly increased.

In January of 2019 at the latest, the researchers reported that as a part of the Earth, that it might be 4.1 billion years old, and has been referred to as the planet’s oldest rock.” The area of the Earth, which may be the result of an asteroid impact, which was found and excavated on the moon by the Apollo astronauts.

THE MOON’S MYSTERY SOLVED? STUDY SUGGESTS GIANT SPACE ROCK TO HIT EARTH 4.5 B YEARS AGO,

Scientists have recently learned that the moon will lose water when meteoroids hit the surface, according to a new study published in the March, 2019.

A month later, researchers published a study that suggested that the moon formed by a giant meteorite hit the planet, about 4.5 billion years ago, when it was still forming.

NASA has started the study of the lunar samples that were brought back during the Apollo missions, and Fox News reported that in the month of November.
